Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - Grand Strand Health is pleased to welcome 58 new physician residents into their expanding graduate medical education (GME) program. Grand Strand Health now has 124 residents across six medical specialties with plans to add additional subspecialty programs in the coming years.
"Having graduate medical education at our hospital allows us to provide optimal care to the citizens of our community," states Dr. Scott Duncan, Designated Institutional Official for the Grand Strand Health Graduate Medical Education Program. "Moreover, training these physicians into specialists provides the pipeline for new doctors to permanently join our region and alleviate the shortages that the U.S. currently faces. Graduate medical education infuses our community with new doctors who help elevate the care that people receive at Grand Strand Health facilities."
Grand Strand Health residents will train with dedicated, patient-focused physician teams who will inspire and challenge them to further their medical expertise in a particular specialty.
